Miranda Kerr’s accused intruder’s bizarre move

AUSTRALIAN man Shaun Haywood, accused of attempting to murder a security guard outside Miranda Kerr's Malibu home, continues to frustrate a Los Angeles judge by refusing to leave his jail cell.

Haywood is holed up in downtown LA's Twin Towers correctional facility and has declined to attend his past two court dates.

Judge Alan Schneider, who ordered sheriffs to perform a jail cell extraction to ensure Haywood was in court on Wednesday, issued a second extraction order when told Haywood was a no-show again.

The judge said the 31-year-old boxer from the NSW Central Coast can't dictate "at his pleasure" when to appear in court.

"The defendant has now refused twice," Judge Schneider said.

"We did issue an extraction order for today's date."

The judge demanded sheriffs have Haywood on the "first bus" from the jail for his next court appearance whether Haywood refused to go with them or not.

"We will, over the defence's objection, order him extracted," the judge said.

Haywood has been held in LA jails and mental facilities on $US1.05 ($A1.493) million bail since his arrest outside Kerr's home on October 14, 2016.

He faces attempted murder, aggravated mayhem and assault with a deadly weapon charges.

Haywood was declared fit to stand trial last September after concerns about his mental state, but his lawyer indicated Haywood would enter not guilty pleas by reason of insanity.

Authorities allege a violent struggle erupted between Haywood and the security guard when Haywood went to Kerr's home to deliver her a letter.

Haywood allegedly grabbed the guard's knife and slashed the guard in the face.

The guard responded by shooting Haywood, according to authorities. Kerr, who has since married Snapchat billionaire Evan Spiegel, no longer lives at the house.
